Hey folks,
Problems, problems......
Found this forum searching for a solution to what appears to be the result of a very bug. Hope someone can help.
Laptop had not been used in a bit. Turned it on. Would not load Windows 7 at first....but did so on restart. Got message that MSE had found and 'removed' Aleureon. Unfortunately, it seems to have left a disaster zone. Can not get online with any browser. Downloaded TDSSkiller on desktop to a CD...but laptop would not run the program. same for AVG.
Tried to use system repair disc but no luck there either. Presently backing up data in anticipation of the worst.
Any suggestions??????? Any help would certainly be appreciated! Thanks in advance.

Lets give it a try. You will need a USB (Flash) pendrive.

For x32 (x86) bit systems download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to a flash drive.
For x64 bit systems download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool x64 and save it to a flash drive.

Plug the flashdrive into the infected PC.

Enter System Recovery Options.

To enter System Recovery Options from the Advanced Boot Options:
  • Restart the computer.
  • As soon as the BIOS is loaded begin tapping the F8 key until Advanced Boot Options appears.
  • Click on Repair your computer menu item.
  • Select US as the keyboard language settings, and then click Next.
  • Select the operating system you want to repair, and then click Next.
  • Select your user account and click Next.
On the System Recovery Options menu you will get the following options:

Startup Repair
System Restore
Windows Complete PC Restore
Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool
Command Prompt

  • Select Command Prompt
  • In the command window type in notepad and press Enter.
  • The notepad opens. Under File menu select Open.
  • Select "Computer" and find your flash drive letter and close the notepad.
  • In the command window type e:\frst.exe (for x64 bit version type e:\frst64) and press Enter
    Note: Replace letter e with the drive letter of your flash drive.
  • The tool will start to run.
  • When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
  • Press Scan button.
  • It will make a log (FRST.txt) in the flash drive. Please copy and paste it to your reply.

Thanks for your kind reply. My apologies.....I got too frustrated and simply wiped the slate clean. Laptop is now functioning again. I will just need to try to recover what I did manage to back up before I zapped everything.
I will certainly try to check with you again if I run into problems in the future. Maybe I will be less hasty..although actually I had been working on it for hours.
Do appreciate your effort!
